Tokyo - As close as possible with 27:28, the German handball * team lost their opening game at the Olympics * against Spain.

The DHB players were pissed off after the final siren.

In addition to the questionable referee decisions, goalkeeper Johannes Bitter also criticized the behavior of opponents Spain.

"In the last two minutes, things have happened that you don't want to see in handball," he

snorted

at the

“We saw an opponent who intentionally wet the ball so that we would be at a disadvantage and possibly make technical mistakes.

Maybe that's how you play at this level, ”said Bitter sarcastically.

With two and a half minutes to go, the German team was still in the lead, then the Spaniards turned the game around at the last minute.

According to Bitter, two late wrong decisions by the referee team were decisive for the defeat.

"I have to look at it again, but with the best of intentions I can't imagine that it has to be decided that way."

Playmaker Philipp Weber couldn't believe it either.

"I'm trying to find words right now because I'm really pissed off," he said.

After the Spaniards equalized, a goal from left winger Marcel Schiller was not recognized because of an alleged striker foul.

In the Spanish winning goal, the referees probably overlooked a step error.

Shortly before the final whistle, another foul was decided - this time against Steffen Weinhold.
